Pan Ams Event Finals

    • Did we just see the best Cheng in gymnastics history from Rebeca Andrade? We discuss, with comparisons to the best from Cheng Fei and Simone Biles. Should the judges have given this a 10 E score? Do we want to live in a world where this isn’t a 10 in execution?
    • Plus, the best moments from the rest of the event finals at Pan Ams, including titles from Zoe Miller and Kaliya Lincoln, controversy in the beam final, and the comedy stylings of Franchesca Santi and Jordan Chiles.

Mini-Commissions

    • We have two mini-commissions this week! First, from Beth, we have a mini-commission on Gabby Douglas. We discuss the historic significance of her return, the latest skills she’s posting on socials, and how her 2016 routines would hold up against the 2023 US worlds team.
    • Next, from Jay, a mini-commission on Kristie Phillips being left off the 1988 Olympic team. We discuss the greatness of Kristie Phillips as a performer, the data on why she actually should have been on that Olympic team, and the syndrome of TV commentary affecting your memory of how a gymnast actually performed.
